We hope you can join us this Sunday, April 17th at the Rigby for our next jam. The band is Eric Koppa – sax , Matt Rodgers – bass, Doug White – keyboard, and John Lombardardo – drums. The featured tune is Charlie Parker’s, “Now’s The Time.” This is a blues in F concert and a common jam session tune. I always recommend learning the melody by ear and because it is repetitive there’s not that much to figure out with this one. The first video below is the original and good for learning the song because it is slower. The second video sounds like the one that’s in the Omnibook. It is a great source of ideas.

Learn Jazz Standards has a playalong track. Sheet music is available in fake books and on the internet – just make sure it’s in the right key for your instrument.
